    Pumping Station Restoration - Before/After

    Well, I spent 2 weeks, working 3-4 hours a day doing some restoration work on my pumping station. 10 years in the AZ sun was hard on it. I replaced all the conduit, found/fixed two plumbing leaks, changed out some wiring, replaced all rusty hardware, caulked cracks in the concrete pads and added the river rock. The color is Satin Granite. Still deciding if I should do a repaint the beaten up heater. Also, want to start researching a motor/pump upgrade...G
